The last school time for the class 2021 will be different to say the least. From today, year 12 will be able to return to their schools to study for their final exams and assessments and reunite with their friends before the end of their high school days. St John Paul II College students Campbell Ellison, 17, and Emma Bramham, 18, welcomed the opportunity to get out of their bedrooms and back into the school environment to the last dose of motivation. “Going back to school this semester is the culmination of my entire educational journey … whether there was a pandemic or not, I think this last semester is something really, really special,” Ellison said. Bramham was very happy to return for face-to-face learning despite having to wear a mask in the classroom. “We only have five weeks left before we have final exams, so you do not even get a whole semester, which is a bit disappointing, but it will be nice to spend time with people before we all go to our next year. “St John Paul II College Principal Catherine Rey said she was very pleased to welcome 12 students back to class for what was typically a difficult period for senior students.” Spring has begun and students are tired. They have worked hard and they have a hard time maintaining momentum until the end, and that makes it far even more difficult, “she said.

Prime Minister Andrew Barr said a lot of planning had been done at the territorial level during the school holidays. “The individual responses will necessarily be tailored to each school level, but it will be really important for teachers and parents and students to feel confident that the measures taken at each school reduce the risk,” Barr said.
